Yes, it will.

Looks pretty solid! For formatting however, not Journaled? just Mac OS X Extended and not Mac OS X Extended Journaled? 


and have you gotten booting without the USB working on yours yet?


Oops, that was an oversight on my part. I edited the guide.


I haven't tried yet to boot without the USB, I have that planned for tomorrow.

I've created a new guide on how to install Yosemite on the Surface Pro 3. If anyone has issues with installs and such direct questions there so we can get it all on one place and help other users.




Hi all. I was just scrolling through this thread as I am planning to setup OS X on my sp 3 (i5/128gb) as well this evening.


I'm not an expert here but if I got it right, the problem with WiFi/BT is that no one knows the interface (or there is no interface) between WiFi driver/kext and the operating system. However, USB WiFi sticks are working perfectly fine. Can't we just somehow tell OS X that the internal WiFi device is something like an external USB WiFi stick?


Sorry if this is a stupid suggestion but I have never done anything closer to hardware than .net and java.

If I can help somehow just let me know :).


Edit: Did anybody experience a blue screen with small text on it instead of clover?


Sadly it's the lack of drivers that is holding back WiFi and Bluetooth from working. And, if I recall correctly it's not easy to write them to get it to work. So for now the hardware is deemed "incompatible" until someone figures it out.


and what kind of Blue Screen? Did it ask you for a drive key? if so you might need to turn off Bitlocker on your Windows drive.

New to insanelymac, but are you guys able to boot OS X on the SP3 with OS X installed on the microSD slot/card? I also want to confirm that Bluetooth is working on the SP3 with OS X.

I haven't tried installing Os X on a MicroSD card so I can't say. I am able to boot it from the SSD. Bluetooth SHOULD work following the fix on JahStories' tutorial. I never had the chance to try it out though.

Any updates with the i7 model and the HD5000 graphics?

Unfortunately, I don't have an i7 Surface Pro 3 so I can't test it. If you have one you can follow the steps in the tutorial I've linked and use the config.plist I've attached to my first post to see if it works for you.
